Silvija was born in Split, Croatia. After finishing high school she decided to study economics in her hometown, but very early on it became obvious that a desk job was not for her. She began searching for a new career choice and pursued her passions, confident that something would eventually manifest itself. After falling in love with rock climbing and spelunking she started traveling throughout Croatia with friends. Biking naturally became a part of her lifestyle since it proved to be the best way to get around the dozens of Croatian islands and stunning coast that she discovered was a true paradise for outdoor lovers. Aside from being fluent in English, she also learned to speak German and actually did her first bike tour at the age of 17 in Germany as a good summer job to earn some pocket money and maintain her active lifestyle. Silvija has since tried all kinds of jobs but was always drawn back to guiding bicycle tours. Getting paid to do what she loves has become the perfect career choice for her. She has been leading bicycle tours in Croatia with ExperiencePlus! since 2008.
